"New PCR tests were checked on patients’ samples provided by the Center for Public Health. We hope that the Ministry of Health will be interested in the combined PCR test," said Director of IMBG, Academician Mykhailo Tukalo, the Institute of Molecular Biology and Genetics posted on Facebook.
The Institute notes that the test run time is about 6 hours.
